Shout! - Poem by spiritual seeker

They say,
If I wanted to shout,
Yes, anything under the sun to shout…
Go to this isolated point overlooking a silent valley,
There I can shout my heart out,
Until my voice turned hoarse,
Yes, till the sun disappeared from the horizon.

But no! Don't speak to the people,
It's a crime!
Even to whisper,
It's against the law!
What more in the print or internet,
If whatever I say are against their wishes!

Look! They had long ignored the truth, put a blind eye…
Closed their heart to the monstrous reality that daily troubled the people,
Corruption, nepotism, cruelty, poverty … a long list of them,
That WE the people are no more allowed to speak freely,
Yes, strictly and completely forbidden… because it's against the law!
May I ask - whose law is it?

    All should have a voice; everyone deserves to be heard.10
